The gift of TIME


My dear friend Chrissie at Jumbled Crafts has given me the best gift of all.  She has generously created a recycled project I can include with my bEARTHday posts.

Just look at this beauty Chrissie made.  According to Chrissie:

It started life as an empty coffee tin, a small piece of old wall paper and some tatty tissue paper my daughter was throwing away.

This looks less like "tatty tissue" and more like a lovely flower to me.  However, you must visit Jumbled Crafts to learn how she made it.  By the way, Chrissie is a big tease, too.  Here she writes:

Not going to say what is inside that will be something you will find out later today.

So, like everyone else, I'm off to visit Chrissie at Jumbled Crafts to learn about how to make this and the surprise she has in store for all of us.   It goes without saying, please DO NOT PIN this from my blog without Chrissie's permission.

Thank you beyond belief, Chrissie.  You have no idea how grateful I am for this gift of time.  Click on any Chrissie at Jumbled Crafts links to be immediately taken to her blog.

Exciting to see a featured recycling project from talented recycling-queen Chrissie here. What a lovely idea to have her as a guest for the Earth Month projects!
Happy Day Elizabeth!

Nice. :) Chrissie's been very creative lately and comes up with some of the coolest ideas. Oh yes, and to answer your comment about the SAT versus the ACT. here's my understanding, although I'm sure there is someone that knows more than me. I believe it is more of a regional thing which test is more popular. For schools here in the northeast the SAT is more popular than the ACT. We also use the SAT in New Hampshire instead of other state testing for juniors because it fits the bill for all the requirements of those standardized tests Plus the kids can use it for school afterwards. So you took the ACT and I took the SAT. My daughter did both because she was thinking of schools all over the place. Hope that explains it. :) Have a great day. Hugs-Erika

Lovely present Elizabeth.
I also have some recycled cans that I use as pen holders and junk holders on my desk.
